Room Facilities

Retire to your room to enjoy a view of the Thames if you're lucky enough to be on that side of the hotel, and you'll drift off to sleep in the hotel's comfy beds. The rooms are stylish and simple, making them seem even bigger than they are. The private bathrooms in particular are large for an airport hotel and make you feel welcomed rather than crammed in. There's even free wifi throughout the hotel.

The hotel has some rooms that are accessible to travellers with less mobility. These have lower handles and lighting and temperature controls, emergency cords, higher toilets with railings, bath seats and roll-in showers. The furniture can be moved around in these rooms to make access easier.
